Lakeside Chautauqua
June 18-24, 2016
New Teen Center Opens on Waterfront
It's a brand new summer, and now, Lakesider teens will have a brand new space where they can engage in the Chautauqua experience together.

Previously, teens were unable to participate in all four Chautauqua pillars through the 'Lakeside Underground' program, which provided spiritual and physical activities that catered to the 13-18 age group.

The concept of a Teen Center is to build on the work that had started with 'Lakeside Underground' and provide a physical space for teen programming in all four Chautauqua pillars.

Lakesiders are invited to tour the newly renovated Teen Center, located in the Lower Pavilion Room, from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Saturday, June 18 at our open house. Refreshments will also be served.

Pool & Wellness a Top, Short-Term Priority
During the summer of 2015, residents and guests were asked to imagine what Lakeside could be in the years to come.

Many needs were identified, but Lakesiders noted two major, short-term priorities; a community swimming pool and enhanced wellness programming.

Health and wellness have always been integral to our mission of nurturing mind, body and spirit.

In response to overwhelming feedback, a Community Taskforce was assembled to study community pools and wellness centers in order to make a recommendation to Lakeside's Board of Directors in February.

Broad-based electronic surveys were conducted during the year to identify the most desired pool features, exercise classes and wellness education lectures.

The Taskforce assumed an aggressive timeline with a target goal of opening a pool and wellness center in 2017.

Collector Car Show Returns to Lakeside
A variety of classic, vintage and collector cars and trucks will open Lakeside Chautauqua's summer season at the 11th Annual Lakeside Collector Car Show. The event will take place from 2-8 p.m. Saturday, June 18 on the Hotel Lakeside lawn.

Auto enthusiasts may enter cars and trucks in the show. Motorcycles may not enter, as they are not permitted on the Lakeside grounds.

Guests can expect to see between 50-60 collector vehicles this year, including Model T Fords, 1930s Auburns and 1950s Chryslers, according to Car Show Coor­dinator Bill Shannon.

Solo guitarist and singer, Gary Cover, will also perform classic rock, country and current hit songs from 2-5 p.m. on the Pavilion West Deck.

Lakeside Chautauqua earns Standards for Excellence Certification from OANO
Lakeside Chautauqua has been awarded Standards for Excellence Certification by the Ohio Association for Nonprofit Organizations (OANO). These Standards exist to promote ethical practices and accountability in nonprofit organizations throughout Ohio.

All OANO members are requested to pledge their commitment to the guiding principles; however Lakeside has taken its commitment a step further by applying for Standards for Excellence Certification.

In order to receive this certification, an organization agrees to undertake an in-depth application and anonymous peer review process that ensures they are adhering to the guiding principles.

Based on the Broadway musical of the same name, "Annie" is a musical comedy-drama film about a fiery, young orphan girl, Annie (Aileen Quinn), who lives in a miserable orphanage run by the ruthless Miss Hannigan (Carol Burnett).

The group formed in 1967 after only playing a few small gigs together. The following year, they played their first show at Tony Packo's Café, in Toledo, Ohio, where they would continue to headline for 35 years.

Since then, the Cakewalkin' Jass Band has not only dominated the Toledo music scene, but it has expanded to playing shows across the U.S.

Smirk! - Jugglers
Physical comedian Reid Belstock and innovative juggling ace Warren Hammond have teamed up to bring Lakeside a hilarious and incredible juggling and slapstick performance at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, June 22.

With Belstock playing a maniacal goofball and Hammond playing the straight face, the duo has garnered the honor of being compared to Abbott & Costello.

Belstock began juggling at age 15 to help overcome gross and fine motor skill impairment. What started as a therapy method became a performance piece just one year later.

Thursday, June 23
VoicePlay first began as a street corner barbershop act that has evolved into an internationally-acclaimed touring sensation since they were first introduced to America on the premiere season of NBC's "The Sing-Off" in 2013.

Performing as an a capella group, instruments are not used in their shows. Instead, the music is created with just the five members' voices and various harmonies, covering 5 1/2 octaves.

Members of VoicePlay include Earl Elkins, Jr., Layne Stein, Eli Jacobson, Tony Wakim and Geoff Castellucci.

Friday, June 24
Mike Albert & the Big "E" Band
Mike Albert & the Big "E" Band will return to the Hoover Auditorium stage at 8:15 p.m. Friday, June 24.

Albert is known worldwide for his respectful portrayal of Elvis Presley with his "Ultimate Tribute" show.

With songs including "All Shook Up," "Can't Help Falling in Love" and "Blue Suede Shoes," Albert has won seven major world "Elvis" contests for his impersonation of the King of Rock 'n' Roll.

Beginning with sing-a-long tapes of Elvis' greatest hits, Albert discovered a hidden talent and developed it into a real passion.
